About the Pub

This nautical themed pub celebrates the Mayflower ship which set sail from the nearby landing steps for historic journey to New England carrying the Pilgrim Fathers in 1620. The pub boasts five guest ales and an appropriately named house beer ‘Scurvy’. Good food is available lunchtimes and evening. At the rear is a fantastic wooden jetty above the Thames from where the Mayflower set sail. A popular pub for the tourist trail and is only pub licensed to sell US & UK postage stamps in the UK. The interior is in the style of a 17th century tavern and it is very easy to forget you are not in the age of sail, as the walls are adorned with various nautical objects and documents. The upstairs restaurant has an ambience of fine dining. Operated by The Black Dog Pub Company, established 2013, whose other pubs are The Prince Of Wales, Kennington and Leadbelly's at nearby Canada Water. Originally ‘The Shippe’, when it opened in 1780, this charming riverside pub was renamed the Mayflower in 1958 after the ship which left from here for America carrying the Pilgrim Fathers. The pub boasts five regularly changing ales with a fourth appropriately named house beer ‘Scurvy’. Good food is available lunchtimes and evening. A fantastic wooden jetty at the rear offers wonderful views of the river. A popular pub for the tourist trail. The interior is in the style of a 17th century tavern and it is very easy to forget you are not in the age of sail. However, the interior is in fact a more recent makeover which does unfortunately hide its genuinely old features.
